JOHN WILSON (1912 - 2015)
Beach Scene.

Watercolor, ink, and crayon on paper, 1963. 737x965 mm; 29x38 inches. Signed and dated in ink, lower right.

Provenance: private collection, Massachusetts.

This large watercolor, possibly a prepatory study for a painting, is a scarce example of a 1960s work on paper by this distinguished Boston painter and printmaker who is known for his large-scale figurative works and social realism. Wilson later revisited this composition in 1973 same-titled etching-see lot 83.
